Welcome, race fans to today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup review. This is the seventeenth race of the season. 10 Patrick Carpentier is on the pole with the speed in qualifying of 129.776. He had to qualify on speed to get into the race, and was faster than anyone else. 43 Bobby Labonte starts second. 45 is Terry Labonte while Kyle Petty is in the booth. He got in on speed, instead of having to use his past Champion provisional. 70 is Johnny Sauter. 8 is Aric Almirola. 34 Tony Raines and 21 Marcos Ambrose didn’t make the race.
10 Patrick Carpentier leads from the pole. 29 Kevin Harvick takes the lead. 43 gets by 10. 88 Dale Earnhardt, Jr. gets by 41 Reed Sorenson. 88 gets by 66 Scott Riggs for fourth. 11 Denny Hamlin gets by 17 Matt Kenseth. 66, 9 Kasey Kahne and 1 Martin Truex, Jr. battle. 41 and 1 battle for fifth. 1 takes the position. 12 Ryan Newman gets by 26 Jamie McMurray. 88 gets by 43 for second. 16 Greg Biffle is falling back. 11 gets by 84 A J Allmendinger. 88 catches leader 29 when 29 starts to lap traffic. 88 takes the lead.
20 Tony Stewart bumps 40 Dario Franchitti to take thirteenth. 1 gets by 43 for third. And we have Green flag Pitting begining with 9. 7 Robby  Gordon led in there somewhere. When it’s all over, 29 is back in the lead. The first caution comes out when 44 David Reutimann gets into 40 and sends him into the wall. 78 Joe Nemechek  is the Lucky dog and gets his lap back. 5 Casey Mears stays out to lead. 83 Brian Vickers also stays out. 29 and 20 take fuel only and come out of the pits first. 29 gets by 83 for second. 20 gets by 83 for third.
The second caution is for debris. 10 Patrick Carpentier is the Lucky Dog. Everyone pits. 20 comes out of the pits first to lead. 31 cars are on the lead lap. 29 and 24 Jeff Gordon battle for third. 24 gets by. 24 and 5 battle for second. The third caution comes out when 78 spins. 8 Aric Almirola is the Lucky Dog. The top seventeen stay on the track. 19 Elliot Sadler and 15 Paul Mennard battle for the Lucky Dog position. All forty-three cars are still on the track.
42 Juan Pablo Montoya gets into team mate 41, and 41 falls back. 07 Clint Bowyer and 29 battle for sixth. 07 gets by. 88 gets by 29. 31 Jeff Burton gets by 88 for eighth. The fourth caution comes out during the commercial. 84 blows up and catches fire. 41 Reed Sorenson is the Lucky Dog. 20 comes out of the pits first. 16 is too fast entering the pits. We go Green lap 211. 00 Michael McDowell blows up. He gets off the track and we stay green. 8 gets loose and saves it.
The fifth caution comes out when 9 wiggles into 8 in the corner and 8 couldn’t save it. 5 gets fuel only and 18 Kyle Busch takes two tires. 19 Elliott Sadler is the Lucky Dog. The top seventeen, except 5 stayed out. They are three-wide into turn three! 38 David Gilliland and 01 Regan Smith battle for the Luck Dog position. There is weather in the area. 9 spins and gets going, so we stay green.
24 and 48 Jimmy Johnson battle for second. They touch. 48 gets by. And they battle again. 48 stays ahead. 11 and 24 battle. 11 finally gets by. 07 and 24 battle. 07 wiggles and falls behind 24. 48 is closing in on leader 20. There are twenty-nine cars on the lead lap, and forty-one cars on the track. 48 gets loose.
The sixth caution comes out when 88 is trying to pit and 26 rams into him to spin him into the pits. 26 goes up the track, into the wall, off the wall and down into 6 David Ragan, who looses his tire! 24 gets fuel only, as does 11 and 48. 2 Kurt Busch, 55 Michael Waltrip, 96 J J Yeley, 1, 19, 41, 5 and 43 stay out.
The seventh caution comes out when 77 Sam Hornish, Jr. clips 07 and sends him into the wall. During the caution, 18 gets into 42 (he says he was trying to get around 40, but it was a caution and you can’t get around anyone). So, 42 puts his nose into 18 and 18 spins into 42! “Do unto Kyle Busch before he does unto you”. Way to go JP. It starts raining and the pace car brings everyone down pit road.
NASCAR calls the race and 2 Kurt Busch wins the race.
